SillySeason look into five players that should leave the Emirates Stadium
With the transfer window officially open now, business between clubs is set to increase with players going all over the place, and today, SillySeason are going to focus on potential departures from Arsenal.
Yesterday we looked at five players that need to leave Chelsea this summer, and today we are going to focus on their London rivals, The Gunners.
The North London outfit announced that Abou Diaby has left the club on a free after they decided against renewing the Frenchman’s contract due to injury concerns.
Diaby would have been one name on our list to leave Arsenal, but as it’s already been confirmed, we’ve had to do a late swap into our list.
So without further ado, lets look into five players that should leave Arsene Wenger‘s side this summer.
5) Tomas Rosicky
Starting the list is quite a controversial pick because he’s a fan favourite at the Emirates, but he simply won’t get game-time next season.
Tomas Rosicky is one of Arsenal‘s longest serving players, and that is why he is so loved in the red-side of North London, however, for his own career, he needs to move on.
Mesut Ozil, Santi Cazorla, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere and even Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain can all play in the central attacking midfield role and are all considered ahead of Rosicky in the pecking order.
The Czech international has admitted last season that he’s frustrated with the game-time at Arsenal and has revealed his anger at his current situation.
However, Arsenal decided to extend his contract by an extra-year, which was a clause in his contract, meaning he will likely stay put at the club for another season.
Although he is likely to stay put, Rosicky for himself should be seeking an exit in order to play regular first-team football elsewhere.
